This week’s little short is called Transparent. It’s about wanting to disappear from the world, to not rely on people around you.
The story I wrote this week is currently titled Esper. It’s about being able to see other people’s thoughts, and the anger and disgust that comes along with recognising how they unintentionally spread harm and are unconcerned about it. I wrote it to try to work through some feelings around events that happened last week, but 250 words isn’t entirely enough space for that.
Last week was my company retreat, which took me away from home. And I’ve been testing out new meds that I’m currently still uncertain about. They kick in a bit rough, like an angry mule. There has been, unfortunately, too little reading and writing this week.
